Parking and Transportation Tips
By University Bus (Free)
University of Michigan buses are the easiest way to get around campus! There is no cost - Simply hop on and ride.
Many visitors prefer to park in a parking structure on Central Campus and hop on a blue Michigan bus to ride up to North Campus. It's only about two miles, and the bus ride can take up to 20 minutes during peak traffic times.
Commuter North and Diag-to-Diag Express routes are recommended. The closest stop for these routes is near Cooley Laboratory. Bursley-Baits and Northwood routes will stop at Pierpont Commons, which is a 10 minute walk from Lurie Engineering Center.
You can also track Michigan buses in real time using Magic Bus.
Visitor parking on North Campus is limited. Payment booths accept both cash and card. We recommend you park in the metered visitor parking spaces behind either the Lurie Biomedical Building or Art & Architecture Building. Please make sure that you do not park in the "Blue Permit" or "Business" parking spaces, which are reserved for staff.
North Campus, the home of Michigan Engineering, is a hub of creativity — where engineering, art, music and design students co-exist.
